About our home

Welcome to your next getaway in the vacation hotspot of BC's Okanagan Valley! Our open-concept home was built in 2018-19 at the quiet end of a street in the distinguished Silver Star Foothills neighborhood, 10 minutes east of Vernon. Our respectful family would treat your home with the care we give ours.

From the spacious deck or relaxing hottub watch eagles and hawks soar by day and the city lights sparkle at night. Make S'mores over a campfire looking out over Swan Lake and the mountains beyond. Sit by the front yard waterfall or play miniput beside it. Use the home gym in the garage and take the bikes for a spin on nearby trails: 2 adult (medium size) and three kids (2 teen girls and a teen son).

Our home has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths on the main level with a family room in the walkout basement. The master has a king size bed, TV and an ensuite bathroom. The other two main floor bedrooms have double beds. The beautiful kitchen on the main level has a pantry, large island and all the cooking and dining utensils you'll need, with a gas BBQ on the deck. The living room and den have comfortable furnishings and cable TV/Netflix. The basement den also has Wii and a DVD player. WIFI included.

Our home is ideal for 2 small families or 1 larger family (up to 6).

Washer/dryer/racks available, and we can recommend a cleaning service if you prefer. FYI, two basement suites with separate entrances are currently rented to respectful, quiet tenants. There's excellent insulation between them and the main living area, so you'll hardly notice them or vice versa.

We are open to pets, but please consult with us first.

Our 5-seat VW Golf or Honda CRV can be included. If it's convenient we could even leave a vehicle at the Kelowna or Vancouver airports for you to take the spectacular drive up to Vernon.

Where is it?


A short walk takes you to tennis courts and a new playground for kids. We'll leave our hiking guide book out to explore easy outings in the neighborhood (Grey Canal Trail or BX Falls) or challenge yourself on any of the 40 longer hikes in the region.

From December to March head 15 minutes east to Silver Star Mountain Resort, where you can ski/snowboard for as little as a $30 Cnd./gondala lift ticket (3:30 - 8:30pm). Even March skiing is great that high in the mountains - our neighborhood is often 5-10 degrees warmer than the resort.

There's golfing from February to October in the sunny Okanagan, ranging from $40 to $160 (Cnd.). In the summer Silver Star boasts some of the best downhill mountain biking in the world. This is also wine country, so tour 'till your heart's content, or go trail riding on horseback.

Vernon has great restaurants to suit any taste, big-box stores to get ample supplies and plenty of boutiques for your interests. We're 30 minutes north of Kelowna International Airport (YLW), 5 hours east of Vancouver and 5 hours west of world-famous Banff National Park. The area has old mining/ghost towns you might dare to poke through, and a couple hours north is the famed 'Last Spike' location of Canada's cross-country railroad.
